The 2014 Soccer World Cup has arrived! South Africans are excited to recreate the joyous celebrations that hit our turf in 2010. The opening ceremony and kick-off game offered all sports lovers, and even those that aren’t so keen on footie, a chance to cheer in front of television screens. The cheers for Brazil were louder when fans realised that Eskom had not spoilt our fun by load shedding during the match. That’s the spirit, Eskom!
Yet, rolling black-outs and power outages still threaten to leave us in the dark. Dearest Eskom, please check out the savvy FIFA smartphone application that informs when and where the next soccer game will be. Over the next month, try NOT to synchronise with it.
Let’s help Eskom cope with their load. Switch off all unnecessary electricity sappers during game time and use Consol Solar Jars to conserve energy and light the way to the final. Then, we can still cheer at every goal scored. Live. Not at highlights replayed the next day.
